Prince de Galles A Parisian fairy tale

This summer, the Prince de Galles hotel invites Parisians and foreign visitors to enjoy epicurean breaks in the Patio des Merveilles, tasting summer dishes at Akira Back restaurant and sipping cocktails and mocktails throughout the day at Bar 19.20.

The Prince de Galles awakens our inner child by transforming its patio into a fairy garden inspired by Lewis Carroll, renamed Patio des Merveilles until September 15. This architectural jewel, inaugurated in 1929, is already a delight in itself, and it is even listed as a historic monument by the French Buildings for the richness of its pavements, friezes, columns, and pilasters adorned with mosaic.
